Why Choose Rookery Cottages for your holiday in the Lake District

If you want a comfortable, cosy, clean holiday cottage, with really easy access to the centre of Ambleside village, yet tucked away in a fabulous private location and with on site parking for 2 cars per cottage - then Rookery Cottages fits the bill perfectly. Both have modern kitchens and bathrooms, glass walled balconies and gas central heating. In addition, each has been equipped with comfortable furniture, large smart TV, modern fast free wifi, comfy beds and all the kitchen equipment you may need. Walkers, families and pet owners have been carefully considered with items such as boot racks, many coat hooks, solid floors in the hallway, guidebooks, children's games, DVD's, high chair, travel cot, stair gates, dog cages and washing machine with separate dryer.

Both cottages are virtually identical and sleep up to 5 people in 3 bedrooms (a double, a twin and a single). Each cottage commands spectacular views of the river, Stock Ghyll, and residents have private access to this delightful small river and our terraced garden that runs down to it. Each cottage is enhanced by secluded outside seating areas and glass balconies.

The Rookery is accessed by a small private lane, open only to residents. And the cottages are just 2 minutes easy walk from the centre of the village.

The Rookery is a firm favourite with everyone who stays here and 90% of our bookings are repeat visits from previous customers.
